Why is the freezer not defrosting?


If it is a frost free freezer check that the door is closing properly and the seals are in good contact when the door is shut. Sometimes, when a door is not shut properly ice will build up, even in a no frost freezer

What to do about water leaking from top instead of draining through tube?


clogged drain line?
Freezer /fridge water/ice in fridge and or freezer, or leaks on floor

Usually due to CONDENSATION due to bad door seals or a plugged evaporator drain line? Can use a soft flexable tubing and very hot water to clean it out. Bad door seals usually need replacement, but u can use a blow dryer and something to pry it closer to the door wall while blowing hot air on to it. To create a seal, to test for bad door seals place a dollar bill in between the door and wall of fridge where it closes. Then slide out the dollar bill with door closed. It should offer some resistance and not be easy to pull out.

Fix any gaps in the door seal.Pack out the seal underneath the areas where the door seal has the gaps. This can be done with a small strip of weather stripping, as shown here, or a bit of tightly rolled up paper under the door seal. Alternatively, you can heat the door seal up with a hair dryer to fix the gaps. This softens the door seal and allows you to stretch it.

Most all fridges have a drain. Look inside your fridge for a "V" shaped channel with a small hole. This hole leads to a tube and a small pan which sits on top of your refrigerator's compressor. The defrost cycle causes water to run into the channel, down the tube, and then it generally evaporates with the heat of the hot condenser/compressor.
However, if that tube is clogged with food crumbs, particles , debris etc, you will have to clear it to get back to a normal mode of operation. A toothpick, pipecleaner, straw or a cotton bud can often do the trick. Another trick one can use is to connect a copper tube wire with one end going into the drain hole then attach the other end to the heater wrap it around heater a few times. That will take care of the drain problem when it comes to ice build up but not food build up.
Even a frost free freezer will still ice up at times in the areas away from the heated defrost area and the drain line can freeze. This icing causes the pipe work to the compressor to ice over or sweat and cause a puddle. Or if the drainage has frozen over, it will need to be de-iced. ( usually the line is under the freezer bottom plate covering. Towards the back of the unit) And there is another inside the fridge area also.
Give the freezer a good overnight defrost until it's totally clear of ice in addition to making sure the drain is clear to the pan at the back and then restart the freezer.
God is so good: so this is why I give free advice so please thank him not me.

I have ice building up in the bottom of the freezer even with the ice maker off. Where is the water coming from and what is the fix? I can see a slight trail of ice down the back behind the ice maker and...


From what you described the defrost drain trough is frozen up. The drain tube or the opening in the drain trough is stopped up with some sort of debris and is frozen over.

Each time the freezer goes into a defrost cycle it melts the ice on the coils and the water has no place to go. The result is that water will leak into the freezer compartment, collect on the floor of the freezer and freeze solid.

its not doing a defrost by itself you need to replace the defrost heater/defrost termination sensor/thermostat/defrost timer could be any one of these parts causing this problem you need to test each part with a multi-meter to determine what needs replacing.

Defrost the freezer completely. Make sure the doors are sealed completely when shut. After defrosting plug back in and make sure the fan and the self defroster is functioning (your owner's manual should tell you how to reset the defrost timer). the problem may lay within the defrost system, and/or door seals and/or interior circulating fan.

Ice build-up at the bottom of Glaiator freezer.


Normally, ice buildup in the bottom of a freezer is caused by one or more things. Lack of air circulation, either from a malfunctioning fan or the freezer being overloaded to the extent that either the fan or return ducts are blocked, spillage of ice cube trays, putting warm items into the freezer, thereby causing extra condensation or a bad door seal. If you can't feel resistance when you put a dolar bill iin the door, shut it and lightly pull straight out on the dollar bill, the door seal needs replaced. Mouse damage in the rear of the unit, where the cooling tubes enter the freezer eillbe a pain in the ****, until you get it sealed back up. A little room air, leaking in all the time, is actually a lot of moisture.
Remove everything and put it into something to keep it frozen. Do a FULL defrost and cleaning. Check your seals. It would be best, to remove the back inside panel and make sure the cooling fins are completely ice free and dry before you turn the unit back on.

I keep having frost and ice build up in the upper corners of teh freezer. It will make it difficult soon to slide the doors open. What could be the problem?


Any freezer without automatic defrosting will build this up over time but a poor gasket seal between lid and chest can accelerate the buildup of frost.
If you want to check the quality of the seal, you could use food coloring (I'd choose green or blue) in water, add a drop of dish detergent and apply this mix to the sealing surface of the chest. Closing the lid gently and then reopening it, you may be able to see if the contact between sealing surfaces is as it should be.
The mixture will wipe off easily with a clean cloth or paper towel.
